I'm lowered somewhat low and dont rub in the rear with 235s and 15mm spacers. I would definitely rub if I put on 20mm ones.

So you should be fine with stock ride height and 235s with 20mm spacers. But if you lower it, you might need new spacers. 15 might be a safer bet if you plan on lowering at all.

I have 12 mm spacers in the rear with the exact same set up you have and I like it. I think either 12 or 15 mm spacers would be perfect and still allow you clearance if you decide to lower the car.

So on a square set up, your only going to put spacers in the rear? Why? Go 12mm front/rear. Maybe 15 rear.

Front is not that bad IMO , it's the back wheels that are tucked in

I've searched a bit and found mixed answer so i'm gonna ask that here. Is it possible to add spacer only in rear or different wideness spacer back and front ?

Thanks

why not, you can put the spacer in rear, but you will feel more understeer

I'm running 18x8.5 +35 in the front and 18x9.5 +35 in the rear. After doing some measurement and although the rims are ALMOST flushed they're not. So I bought 12mm for the front and 15mm for the rear. Waiting for them to come in. Once they do I'll throw them on and check out the stance. I'll throw up some pics afterwards...

ive got 8.5 et 30 front and et28 rear on stock ride height. I used 10/15mm spacers for my wheels that were originally et40. i think you could easily run 12-15 out back, 20s would be pushing it. Throw a 5 up front too!
